Cowboy came from a home of many other animals, mostly dogs and cats, but also some livestock. His original owner was a woman and he didn`t have too much opportunity to build an extensive human fan base but he`s grown one at the shelter. He can take just a bit of time to warm up to someone new. With a cattle dog trust is earned, not learned, but then he`s your best goofy friend ever, a cuddler who rolls over for belly rubs, and one who will cozy up to simply watch the scenery with you. He`s a great easy walking dog too, loves just a touch of agility, a brief walk through the pool and he pays no attention to nearby birds. He`s ready to come back into the AC after a short walk, he knows and loves his creature comforts. He`s house trained and crate trained too but didn`t need one. Cowboy is not a working dog except working for his owner`s love. His owner will respect that Cowboy develops a deep bond with his primary person and will help him learn how to have healthy and safe interactions with new people so he can widen his social base. The work invested will be so worthwhile.
